Louis Jadot owns or directly controls 120 ha in the Côte d’Or, including over 90 individual vineyard sites, 84ha in the Beaujolais Crus and 18ha in the Mâconnais primarily in Pouilly Fuissé (they own the fantastic Domaine Ferret).

Tasting Notes

Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir Couvent des Jacobins offers a colour of medium intensity, purplish in its youth changing to ruby and then garnet, after several years in bottle. It is harmonious and balanced, with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offset by round, gentle tannins in a wine of medium body and elegant structure. The very typical, fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a deliciously lingering finish.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs particularly well with traditional Burgundian cuisine, such as coq au vin or boeuf bourguignon, as well as roasted poultry, grilled salmon, or earthy mushroom dishes. Its lively acidity and refined character also make it an excellent companion to charcuterie and mild cheeses.
